Jay Shetty is an American writer, life coach, and motivational speaker. He’s currently the host of the popular podcast On Goal. Before creating his podcast, he had been the fitness and lifestyle editor for People and Style. Jay Shetty’s enthusiasm for life coaching and helping others reach their full potential in both their personal and professional lives is what originally sparked his interest in creating a product that would help others reach their full potential. Jay ShettyBooks is his first published book.
Jay ShettyBooks isn’t just for business school graduates that want to get back into education or learn how to become better leaders. Jay Shetty believes that everyone has a right to be successful in life. “We are living in a time where we are all looking for a bigger, better, faster. . .achieving things we never believed we could,” says Jay Shetty. Jay Shetty says that he wants to bring the message of self-esteem and achievement to all people. This book is about motivating yourself to achieve your goals and becoming the successful person you want to be. Jay Shetty says that the true motivating force in life isn’t necessarily the end goal, but the journey along the way towards it.
Jay Shetty graduated from Harvard University with a degree in business and became a successful businessman in business school. He began a family provider in business and marketing, which eventually grew into a very successful company of his own. Jay Shetty developed what is now called the Three Step Formula that helps individuals reach their full potential by setting specific goals, taking action daily, consistently achieving those goals, and enjoying the journey.
Jay Shetty was interviewed on the 1-Health Podcast. The interview was recorded by YouTube and can be seen below. From the interview Jay Shetty discussed the Three Step Formula and how he came to use it in his coaching, how it works, the benefits to his clients, and the journey toward happiness. Jay Shetty said he was also a monk when he first started coaching, and that his monk like qualities became important to him. He then used those monk like qualities in his coaching.
The Three Step Formula is a program that Jay Shetty developed in India, which he utilized in his training for over three decades. The program enables one to develop the strength of will through the use of daily affirmations. Jay Shetty says that the One Health Plan is meant to help people reach their potential in all facets of their lives; physical, mental, and spiritual. Jay Shetty also says that the One Health Plan will help one focus on wellness in a simple way as it’s about setting specific goals which will result in health, rather than health in a generic way.
While listening to the One Health Podcast Jay Shetty shared some of his wisdom throughout the podcast, which included concepts such as: the power of positive thinking, why monasteries are so important, meditation, mantra, instinct, concentration, mantras, yoga, breathwork, meditation, gratitude, and lastly yoga teacher training. Some of these concepts may seem very basic and may not be that well known or understood by most people, but they are concepts that are extremely powerful in the tradition of health and wellness. The wisdom Jay Shetty shares in the podcast is applicable to everyone regardless of what their age or spiritual background is. The majority of the concepts have existed for over three hundred years, but are still applicable today. Individuals might be more open and understand the concepts of monasticism and yoga a little better after listening to this One Health Plan podcast.
After listening to the One Health Podcast Jay Shetty returned to India to teach at an ashram. While there he received enlightenment about what he had learned through his training in yoga and monasticism. Then he decided to take all these teachings and apply them to the business world. Jay Shetty’s three years spent practicing yoga, being a monk in an ashram, and teaching at an ashram were used as the basis for his new life as a coach and consultant in branding, leadership, and mentoring.
Jay Shetty is truly a mentor who has seen it all before. As a former monk who studied for twelve years at the Tibetan Buddhist monasteries he has seen it all before. As a business coach and consultant he’s seen all kinds of business and how folks run businesses. It is truly with this wisdom that he is in a position to help others become better leaders and achieve goals that are more meaningful to them. This is something truly extraordinary that a former monk is now a thriving business coach and consultant.
